Room was very clean. We were able to checkin earlier at no extra cost. I had forgotten my iPhone charger and Tim at the front desk let me borrow his for couple hours. All their staff was very generous. Including their shuttle driver. We also had breakfast and dinner at their restaurant. Great food and service. We will definitely stay... More

Don't let the pictures deceive you. This place is neither a resort nor is it even really a functioning hotel. They should have bit the bullet and renovated in the off season instead of trying to rush this slipshod operation. So the story goes we arrived Friday afternoon before the main weekend rush. Check in was fine; the staff was... More

I never take the time to write reviews but I just had to this time. It was in a bad location, nothing resort or spa like about it. The jacuzzi spa was closed with CAUTION tape. The restaurant smelled like mold. The front desk people were not very nice. We spend $15 per taxi ride mutiple times a day because... More

The room is clean and great no complaints on that. Pool is dirty. Yup dirty. Someone needs to skim it to get the dirty band aids and hair and to pick up the dirty towels the ignorant guests can't pick up. Cause the same towels were there for hours. Ok hotel or guest. Ok. Hot tub was broken. Did not... More

New Seaport Bistro is excellent, thank you Chef Greg. Hotel is up off the main drag providing views unmatched and less crowds. Renovations look great and none of the other hotels have a pool. Loved also playing ping pong

We just returned from a week in July 2015. The hotel remodel of the rooms and lobby is competed and the new lobby is a welcome addition. Each morning they now offer complimentary coffee and muffins in addition to a small refrigerated kiosk where you can purchase cereal, snacks, fruit, yogurt, sandwiches and salads. The restaurant is almost finished and... More

One of the nicest hotels I've ever been to. It's the only hotel on Catalina Island that had a swimming pool. Rooms are nice and clean, staff was very courteous. There are courtesy shuttles that you can take from town up to the hotel and back. They run about every 1/2 hour. I will be back for sure!

Very comfortable beds, easy walk down the hill to town or you can wait for a shuttle that drops you off at 3-4 areas in avalon. It runs every 15-20 minutes. It was very busy when we went,wasn't able to take advantage of the shuttle. A taxi cab back up the hill was about 10 bucks. Pool area could use... More
